Lystek - WWTP Optimization Process

601 views

Published on

Lystek’s unique; hydrolysis process to Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) can be easily integrated into existing WWTP.

High speed shearing, alkali and low pressure steam are simultaneously applied in an enclosed reactor to transform raw sludge or digested biosolids into a unique, multi-purpose material. The end result is a liquid product that
is rich in nutrients and organic matter but that also remains fully pumpable with conventional handling and application equipment.

Lystek - WWTP Optimization Process

  1. 1. Feedstock • Product is stored in tanks or lagoons until application Storage • Product is applied using standard equipment Application • Alkali is added • Steam is injected • High speed shearing occurs Processing • Class A quality • Liquid fertilizer • Sold to market Product • Product is applied using standard equipment Dewatered biosolids Organic food “waste” SUBSURFACE INJECTION Lystek International Inc. (Lystek) was founded in 2000 at the University of Waterloo, Ontario to commercialize the treatment of biosolids and other organic “waste”. The Lystek system was developed on the principles of cost efficiency and long-term, environmental sustainability. The result is an innovative, patented, low cost solution with multiple benefits for converting wastewater treatment plants (WWTP’s) into Resource Recovery Centres. Lystek’s unique; hydrolysis process is award-winning and commercially proven with multiple deployments. High speed shearing, alkali and low pressure steam are simultaneously applied in an enclosed reactor to transform raw sludge or digested biosolids into a unique, multi-purpose material. The end result is a liquid product that is rich in nutrients and organic matter but that also remains fully pumpable with conventional handling and application equipment. The system has a small foot print and is simple, modular and flexible. It can be easily integrated into existing WWTP’s. Capital and operating costs are low and it can be deployed as an on-site or off-site (regional service) solution. Lystek is a financially strong company and our customers benefit from ongoing investments in R & D and business growth. “The addition of the state-of the-art, Lystek solution to our WWTP operations is playing a vital role in contributing to our goal of being a progressive, industry leader in biosolids management.” JANET L. LAIRD, Executive Director Planning, Building, Engineering and Environment, City of Guelph, Ontario One System Multiple Benefits for Biosolids&Organics Management CREATE A CLASS A BIOFERTILIZER
  2. 2. ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: Reduces “waste” Eases odor concerns Easy to operate and maintain Reduces costs and lowers GHG’s CONTACT US: T. 226.444.0186 TF. 888.501.6508 E. info@lystek.com www.lystek.com One of the many benefits of the Lystek biosolids and organics management solution is the conversion of these materials into a pathogen free, exceptional quality, liquid biofertilizer product, called LysteGro™. (Class A EQ-US EPA & CFIA-Canada) Growers are excited and willing to invest in LysteGro™ because of its predictable NPK values, rich, organic content, opportunities for direct (sub-surface) soil incorporation and, most importantly, its performance. Studies and on-farm results have shown that the LysteGro™ product can be superior to conventional, commercial fertilizers in terms of crop yields and the preservation and restoration of soil health and fertility. TYPICAL LYSTEGRO™ FERTILIZER VALUES: • Balanced nutrient source, fertilizer value >$90 - $100/1000 gal • N-P2O5-K2O = 30-35-30 lbs/1000 gal, in the year of application • S 15 lbs/1000 gal, Ca 45 lbs/1000 gal + other micronutrients such as Cu, Zn, B, Mg etc. • Agricultural application rates = 3000 - 4000 gal/acre • Organic matter – approximately 5% LysteGro™ can also be beneficially utilized in sod farming, golf courses, horticulture, forestry, reclamation & bioremediation.
